Daniel Holden must put his life back together after serving 19 years on Georgia’s Death Row before DNA evidence calls his conviction into question.
Creator: Ray McKinnon
Stars: Aden Young, Abigail Spencer, J. Smith-Cameron

Did Daniel do it? That is the question all throughout the episodes. I only got through the first two seasons before I wrote this but I am set to watch the final season for sure.

Ray McKinnon wrote this screenplay. He is known for many acting roles including his in Sons of Anarchy, Mud, and Deadwood.

The story: Daniel Holden was accused of raping and murdering a 16-year-old girl. He spent almost 20 years in prison on death row before DNA evidence was produced to show he possibly was not to blame. The show starts with him getting out of jail and going through jeers and persecution by many in the town who think he did it. The show consists of him trying to heal and basically just cope with life outside of prison. There is also a mystery of whodunnit as his lawyer and the local sheriff start piecing together what happened that night. It takes you in and there are many surprises. At times it does go a bit slow but that is the exception to the general rule. Another thing: Daniel is not necessarily a likable character so that may be a problem for some.

If you like a good mystery that keeps you guessing, I recommend it!


This is a SundanceTV production and at the time of writing this, it was streaming on Netflix.
